4 Must-Have Smart Home Devices
November 05, 2021
When you are looking for ways to make your home easier to monitor, more efficient, and safer, consider asking your electrical contractor to install these 4 smart home devices.
From security cameras and doorbell cameras to motion detection security lights and smart locks, smart home devices can do wonders to keep your home safe at all hours.
Smart locks make it easy to monitor who comes into your home remotely. They allow you to close or open your door from your mobile device. Some of them also have other features:
- Alerting you when someone else is trying to come into the house
- Automatically unlocking the door if a smoke alarm is triggered
- Turning on smart lights around your home when a door is unlocked
Smart security cameras help you monitor the activity around your home from anywhere, anytime. They are a great addition when looking to improve your and your family’s safety. They are also ideal for homes in more secluded areas where wildlife is active. (Just ask residents in Golden Gate Estates in Naples – bears have been seen roaming around recently!)
Now that we have covered some security gadgets, we can move on to devices that focus more on efficiency and convenience.
Smart Light Bulbs
Smart light bulbs aren’t just handy to have around for when you leave the house and forget to turn off the lights. They are useful in many other situations as well. For example, if you struggle to wake up in the morning, you can use smart lights to simulate the sunrise. This allows you to slowly adjust your vision to the brightness. Vacation mode lighting will help keep your mind at ease when you are out of the house, making it look like someone is always home.
You can also connect your smart lights to platforms like Apple’s Siri or Google Assistant so when you get up in the night, you can use voice command to turn them on.
Smart outlets allow you to get more control over your energy spending and overall electrical system. They are ideal to regulate appliances and devices that consume a lot of energy especially when you are not home. They also decreased the hazard of electrocution mainly for toddlers as you can turn them off remotely from your phone or other mobile devices.
